TRAINERS and BOOTS- Trainers are NOT permitted as part of the school uniform and should only be brought to school for use in PE and after school activities. Boots may be worn to and from school in poor weather but must be changed before the start of the school day. In exceptional circumstances pupils may be permitted to wear boots during outdoor play.

No other facial piercings are allowed. Stud earrings MUST be removed for PE and KCC Policy states that pupils are no longer allowed to cover new piercings with tape. Therefore please do not allow pupils to have piercings during term times or any holiday when the piercing will not heal.
MAKE-UP - Make up, including nail varnish is not permitted even for Year 6 pupils. If pupils come to school wearing make-up they will be asked to remove it.

Pupils should not have shaved heads. In addition, pupils should not have ‘radical’ styles such as a Mohican. Girls should not have extravagant decorations in their hair and hair bands should be plain and in a simple colour.
